Directions

Making the Beef Wellington:

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Sear the beef on all sides, 3-4 minutes. Remove from skillet and cover with foil and rest.
  3. Mince the mushrooms and season with 1 teaspoon Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning.
  4. In the same pan in which you seared the beef, melt the butter. Sauté the mushrooms, minced shallot and thyme. As you are cooking, the liquid will render form the mushrooms, making the pan a bit wet.
  5. Continue to cook until all the liquid has dissolved and the pan is dry, about 15-20 minutes, stirring often. Remove the mushroom mix from the pan and allow to cool.
  6. Arrange the ham over plastic wrap on a clean work surface. Cover the ham with the cooled mushroom mix.
  7. Combine the mustard and remaining Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning. Coat the tenderloin in the mustard mix.
  8. Arrange the tenderloin on one edge of the ham and mushroom layer and roll tightly, using the plastic wrap to help you handle the meat as it rolls. Wrap and chill 20 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile, whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon of water and set aside. On a clean, lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry out to a 1/4-inch thick and approximately 2 inches longer on all sides than the tenderloin. Brush long edge and the 2 short edges with egg wash.
  10. Carefully unwrap the tenderloin from the plastic wrap and starting on the dry edge on the puff pastry, and roll the beef and puff pastry to coat the tenderloin, pinching the edges to secure. Place the seam on the bottom and fold the edges under. Wrap and allow to chill another 20 minutes.
  11. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  12. When ready to cook, brush the puff pastry with the remaining egg wash and slice several vents gently across the top to allow steam to escape. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until a thermometer reads 130°F and the pastry is golden and flaky. Allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Making the Brandy Cream Sauce:

  1. Heat the pan in which the mushrooms were sautéed over medium-high heat. Add the beef trimmings and cook until browned all over.
  2. Add the thyme, garlic, black peppercorns, mustard and Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and stir to coat the pan.
  3. Whisk in the brandy, scraping up any browned bits as needed. Slowly whisk in the beef stock and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the beef trimmings.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream.
  5. Serve the sliced Beef Wellington with desired sides and a drizzle of the Brandy Cream Sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley and thyme.
